5.0 out of 5 stars Unique, Challenging and worthwhile., 6 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pantomime (Micah Grey) (Paperback)
This is a very unusual YA book - it tackles some often taboo subject matter head on. What it is not, is a fantasy-by-numbers story. It is a very carefully thought out tale, with an array of interesting and three dimensional characters.
Stylistically, Lam is a very considered writer, and her story is delivered with grace and elegance. Some of her phrasing is pure poetry, and the descriptions of the world she creates give a very visual depiction; it's easy to visualise the setting of her novel.
If you like interesting and creative stories, this is one for you. It's advertised as YA, but I think it is suitable for all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes you want to turn the lights up..., 27 Jun 2012
This review is from: Starblood (Kindle Edition)
Starblood is a novel that makes you want to hide under the covers. The cast of gothic lovelies are twisted, beautiful, interesting and relatable in equal measure. If you like your horror violent and graphic, then this is the book for you. A perfect antidote to tweeny twilight style faux-horror, this one is not for the squeamish.
